G-Cloud 12

G-Cloud 12 

G Cloud 12 is now open for supplier applications.

As with previous iterations of the framework, there are three lots:

Lot 1: Cloud Hosting (IaaS and PaaS)

Lot 2: Cloud Software (SaaS)

Lot 3: Cloud Support

If you are an existing supplier, you will have to make a new application to ensure you continue to be listed in the online catalogue.

If you are not an existing supplier there are plenty of reasons to apply:

  • Since 2012 over £5.7 billion has been sold through the framework.
  • Monthly spend in 2019 thought the marketplace has not dropped below £110 million.
  • 44% of this has been awarded to SME’s.

Carley Consult can help you ensure a compliant listing and offer expertise in writing the service description, the element where most listings fail to generate leads.  The service description in your application needs to the middle ground where the language of the buyers desired outcomes and the technical language of the industry meet.
